Who do Christian teens say Jesus is and what does he mean in their lives? The answers might surprise you.
In The Jesus Survey
, Mike Nappa shares the groundbreaking results of a nationwide survey of Christian teenagers from sixteen different denominations. His discoveries of how core beliefs about the faith influence the way teens actually experience God personally will help you understand the teens in your life so that you can more effectively teach them and nurture authentic, satisfying, and vibrant relationships with Christ.
"Mike Nappa's research definitely reveals more about us than it does our teenagers. We can't expect youth to believe what they have not been taught at home or in the churches they attend. This book will challenge parents and youth leaders alike to pass their faith to students with accuracy and authenticity."--Wayne Rice

"Every parent, youth worker, pastor, and Christian educator should read The Jesus Survey
. Passing on the true faith to the next generation is one of the most critical needs of our day and this book will help us in that challenge. Mike Nappa gives us insight into not only what our kids do and do not believe, but why they are failing to embrace the core beliefs of the faith."--Josh McDowell
, bestselling author and youth speaker
"If you're a youth worker or a parent of a teenager, you're committing malpractice if you don't read this book. The questions about basic Christian doctrine Mike Nappa asks teenagers, and their responses, will give you both a roadmap for where you need to head in your discipling journey with kids and the fuel to help you get there."--Rick Lawrence
